How do you deal with an AquaHot that heats boiler fluid?

As far as what one rightfully calls that, it might be called a boiler fluid heater or "thing a ma jig", depending on who is talking.

There are a lot of misnomers in the world and we can't "fix" them all.

Can't we just live with them instead of belly aching?

I thought we were laughing at them, not belly aching.

Ya, if this was a belly aching post, it would have gone dark a long time ago!

Really running out of things to discus, when 10 pages can be dedicated to a "hot" water heater.

When you run out of hot water in the shower do you call it a cold water heater?


I won't say what I call it when it turns into a cold water heater moderators would probably censure me.

I have never, NEVER run out of hot water in my MH. With a HydroHot you can run hotter water than you can stand under until you run out of water or diesel fuel. When on a full hookup that's a really nice feature. My boat only has a 12 gallon heater, on that you can run out if you're dilly dallying.

And just for the record, the HydroHot turns on and re-heats the water when it gets down to a chilly 165 degrees. Yes. It reheats at 165 degrees truly a hot water heater.

Sorry, but technically speaking Hydrohot turns on when the boiler fluid reaches 165, not the water. It does not measure water temperature, nor does it store heated water (not much anyway). Water passes thru the heating elements and during its journey becomes heated.

You might be on to something here. But I think you've asserted that I said when the [I]water[I] got to 165. Yet I never said that. Here's what I said:

I have never, NEVER run out of hot water in my MH. With a HydroHot you can run hotter water than you can stand under until you run out of water or diesel fuel. When on a full hookup that's a really nice feature. My boat only has a 12 gallon heater, on that you can run out if you're dilly dallying.

And just for the record, the HydroHot turns on and re-heats the water when it gets down to a chilly 165 degrees. Yes. It reheats at 165 degrees truly a hot water heater.


Please read that carefully again and point to the spot where I said it turns on when the water gets to 165. "the HydroHot turns on and re-heats the water when it gets down to a chilly 165 degrees". When the HydroHot gets down to 165 it turns on and reheats the water.

And one can also argue that the boiler fluid is in constant contact (thru the heat exchanger not a "heating element", the electric heating element is in contact with the boiler fluid) with the water, (per your statement "not much anyway") there is little chance that the water can be any different temperature than the boiler fluid.

Thanks for trying, but you have to twist my words to make you point.
